Hi,

Im devoloping a tool to web scrap this website http://www.oddsportal.com/ and i tried to use this extension.

Each time i call action ScrapePage it gives me an error "Unable to connect to the remote server".

I tried at my local machine using the extension and it works fine, but when im using at outsystems platform it raises that error. :(

What could be this?

Thank you for your time.

Hi Luis,

Remember that when you are executing this on the platform the request is actually coming out of the platform server. This means that the server needs to have connectivity to that URL and potentially other requests that are triggered by this URL.

There are a lot of reasons why the website is not reachable but my first guess would be networking configurations on the server that don't allow the website to be reachable.

Are you running this on an on-prem installation?

Cheers

Hi André,

Im running at personal environment. Is there any cloud limitation? 

Thank you

Hi Luis,

I'm not sure! I suggest that you confirm it with OutSystems support.

Cheers
